    Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    ★★★★★

    “Don’t mention Lincoln to me. I have a terrible memory from President’s Day”

    Amazing to treat its predecessor as its primary comedic target.

    Dune

    ★★★

    Worked for me:
    The visual scope and scale. 
    The seamless CGI. 
    The auditory and visual clarity of ‘the voice’ scenes. 
    Javier Bardem. 

    Didn’t work for me:
    Why is Lady Jessica a good fighter? Her winning that knife fight did not make sense. A line of dialogue offers an explanation, but there is no visual clarity or understanding. 
    The score overpowers and sometimes contradicts the visuals rather than supporting and building a cohesive story. 
    The absence of a coherent theme from this half of the story. Harkonnens bad. Fremen good.
